I only gave examples from my own discipline. It may be more helpful
for you to look for summer courses centered around medical/biostat
fields. The statistics is of course the same, but terminology tends to
differ a lot from discipline to discipline. Since you will most likely
be communicating within your own discipline, it pays to start learning
within your own field. Later you can diversify to other disciplines.

That depends on what you mean with non-linear: is it non-linear in the
variables or in the parameters. Often people tend to equate this with
a particular estimator, e.g. non-linear least squares, maximum
likelihood, or generalized method of moments. So you need to specify
more precisely what you mean with that.

Hope this helps,
